Post Thank You Hack 7.4


About this hack:
One of the biggest problems on forums as you may know is 'posts boosting'. There are users who LOVE to say 'thanks' when ever they can. How can it hurt? Their post count goes up, they have nothing to loose.

There are also users who really like to express their thanks to post but don't like posting a post that looks like they're post boosting.

Then comes the moderators who have to delete people's thanks yous so a thread can look readable with out the thanks yous thrown around.

Finally comes the posters of these useful posts. They have no idea how many people really likes their posts if only some people say 'thanks'.

What this hack does is fix ALL these problems - except those users who like post boosting. This places a button called 'thanks.' When a user clicks on it, it places his username in a box right under the post saying that so-and-so says 'thanks' for the post. Every-one who clicks is placed in one box.

By giving your users the extra feature, you forum will look allot nice and organized. It is a guaranteed liking by ALL the members of your forum.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy

  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

But I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean by reverting any post thanks templates. Revert to what?

Make sure you do not have any customizations on the templates that come with this hack.

Excellent hack, thank you for the update, Abe.

I have one question, is it normal for the entire page to refresh when you give or remove a thanks? This never happened in the 5.x series.

Thank you,
Dan

I wouldn't call it a bug, since it seems like a problem on your end only. If I can view your ACP I can try to figure out the problem with the installation.

I've modified this ever so slightly to make it "girly" as my forum is for women. Anyway, I launched it about 10 minutes ago and my members LOVE it. Thanks and great job!!

Just 3 questions :

1) is it possible to count the "thanks" as replies in the forum home?
2) a post that has been just thanked, doesn't go up, but I'd like it to go up

EDIT: just found this that I guess answers my questions...
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=363

3) is it possible to customize the thanks, allowing users to insert a small phrase? (so they can say "thanks", "good job", "bravo"!", as they wish...)

Thanks

For some reason on GARS Comment, I use the postbit template and I'm receiving this error in which I never encountered from this previous post thanks upgrade:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /includes/functions_post_thanks.php on line 190

What is causing this? I've reuploaded all the files and did the template edits. At the moment this hack is disabled until a fix comes up.
